    Broccoli1 is correct. Unless you have a very expensive computer controlled ring rolling machine available you can use, you'll have to allow for flats on both sides of the ring.

    Flats are easily removed by backrolling using the common power or hand crank slip roll.

    Because a standard tape measure is made to be used flat. You'd need to use a pi tape to get a correct measurement.

    Same here. I have a few years in a fab shop and I'm just now starting out on my own. I still have my day job as a jr Project Manager but I plan on starting my own company in a few years. I just turned 20 Friday.

    I didn't think you could roll 1/4" steel in a slip roll. I'll have to check into that, I could have used one just the other day, Thanks.
